July 2010 (Week 3) Clubbing Listings: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee

Right, I'm off to Amsterdam in a few hours so listings have been rather hurried - 'featured club of the week' will be back as of next week, and until then enjoy the torture, techno and trends that make up this weekend! I'm off to see the Poezenboot!

Club: Torture Garden Summer Ball
Venue: The Caves
Date: 17th July

If clubbing choice is all a little too light for you, Torture Garden bring their Summer ball back to Edinburgh for a larger affair in the suitable caves. As well as the usual fetish, neo-burlesque and live art shows throughout the night (featuring some of the biggest names in British burlesque), there will be a clubbing ballroom with electro, breaks, dubstep, dnb, and house; the Kabarett Boudoir plays Vegas and Gypsy punk and Lava Lounge and Tiki Room get out the Glamour Trash, rockabilly, italo-disco and anything exotic. Remember this ain't a 'swing by' event - full dress expected - no fancy dress, no street wear, and no cotton t-shirts. Think latex, chains, leather and serious fantasy.

9pm-3am, £20 on the door (limited tix, get there early)

Club: Musika
Venue: The Liquid Room HMV Picture House
Date: 17th July

Like the proverbial phoenix, the Musika rises from the ashes of a curry-house fire, and relaunches with house and techno 'encore une fois' club stalwart, Sasha. The event was originally to coincide with the relaunch of the Liquid Room, but unfortunately they forgot to build a fire curtain into the roof and will need to postpone.

11pm-3am, £15


Club: Death Disco
Venue: The Arches
Date: 17th July

It's a Death Disco Resident's party, with Hush Puppy, Josh Jones, DJ Mingo-Go and Wavy Graves - you may notice the new additions to the roster Jones and Graves. Josh Jones brings the spaced-out element to disco and wraps it in an Italo cosmos and hip-hop daubs. Wavy Graves are Josh Hill and Vickie McDonald take an exploratory turn, excavating crunk, skwee, post-punk, and disco with a wonk.

11pm-3am, £12 / £7 discount pass available from

Club: Tictactoe
Venue: The Ferry

There ain't no games at Tictactoe's first birthday when Seth Troxler gets behind the decks; the Michigan-born Detroit DJ turned Berlinner ramps up the house and techno. Dig out his Boogybyte's mix and start flexing those dance muscles.
